Comedian Dennis Miller got the last laugh after liberals had a meltdown over his jabs at former Vice President Joe Biden and his 2020 endorsements.
The former “Saturday Night Live” cast member made his first appearance on Fox News in three years, speaking with Sean Hannity Wednesday about the coronavirus crisis and Biden, and irritating liberals who ended up stepping on a rake when all their social media hatred caused his name to begin trending.

“What did I do today? I’ve been lying around all day, wasting away in mitigation-ville,” Miller began.
“I’ve got a couple steaks over here marinated in some hydroxychloroquine,” he added, referring to the drug being touted as a possible treatment for COVID-19.
Miller turned his focus on 2020 Democratic presidential candidate and presumptive nominee Joe Biden, weighing in on some of his high-profile endorsements in recent days.
“I can’t believe that people are endorsing this guy,” he said. “I know he lost his fastball, but I’ve been watching him lately. I think he’s lost his curve, I think he lost his slider and I think he’s wearing his cup as an N95 mask at this point.”
Miller added that the Democrat “should be in the backseat on a Sonic commercial,” referring to the fast-food chain.
Striking a more serious note, Miller commented on the “consequential problem” made by the Biden campaign in letting him offer to speak with President Donald Trump directly about the coronavirus pandemic.
“He should have just shut up. He should have just stayed out of the way,” Miller said, adding that if Biden “gets into a debate with Trump, it’s over.”
“I’m telling you, if he steps out on the debate stage in front of Donald Trump on live television, they might as well send him out carrying an Acme firecracker crate, because it’s over,” Miller told Hannity.
Speaking on Biden’s endorsements this week, which included the much-anticipated formal support from former President Barack Obama, Miller predicted how Democrats would handle Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who announced in a Wednesday appearance on “The View” that she was “absolutely” supporting Biden.
“She won 15,000 votes in a New York district. She means nothing to them, they’ve let her play and all that. It’s serious time now,” Miller said.
The comedian’s remarks naturally sent the left into a spiral, as they leveled personal insults and declared him a has-been.
In the 80s and 90s Dennis Miller was brilliantly funny. I don’t think talent goes away, but in comedy, when you punch down, aligning yourself with the bullies and against the underdogs, the results on your art and craft are catastrophic. https://t.co/T8kbOYp3Zk

Kind of sad the only gig Dennis Miller can get these days is on Hannity….

Dennis Miller, who’s been self-demoted to 5 minute drop-ins on Hannity, accusing Joe Biden of “losing his fastball” is loaded with all the irony.

Dennis Miller delivering convoluted and stale Republican-themed jokes on Sean Hannity’s Fox show dovetails perfectly into my vision of what the apocalypse might look like.

But quarantined liberals were not the only ones reacting to Miller’s comeback on Fox News.

The left shows a lot of butthurt because “Dennis Miller” kills it on Hannity and they realize they don’t have a monopoly on comedy anymore.
In fact, their “comedians” just spew hate on Trump and half the country now. Comedy on the left is dead, and #DennisMiller proves it.

So happy. The great Dennis Miller returns to Fox News for the first time in three years, since they dumped O’Reilly. This is his best format: five minutes of snarky, silly one liners, no interruptions. Good job by Hannity, just laughing his ass off. Hope it’s a thing

Anti-American leftists hating on Dennis Miller is the icing on the @seanhannity cake that was already delicious just the way it was served!
